Screen & Stage
The script example is titled TETRIS, for those of you who missed the first installment. The plot so far has Jake trapped in a secret Chinese military surveillance facility with his colleague Nina.
ACT II (continuation)
J) The Antagonist comes forth.
K) The Protagonist gets a second chance. He bounces back from despair and escapes immediate danger.
L) The Protagonist learns that he's in love with Nina, and she means more to him than his profession.
The final transformation arc moves us into another spin of the Protagonist's behaviour in coping with his desperate situation and bringing it to resolve.
O) Here the Protagonist's most remarkable qualities shine. They signify the most important plot point in the story.
P) The Antagonist is thwarted.
In the cellar prison scene, we planted the foreshadowing of Jake contacting one of his hacker buddies. We already knew going into the above scene that Jake had fixed the deck in his favour. The audience can enjoy the duping of Oleg.
Q) The showdown between the Antagonist and Protagonist. The Protagonist has already made his transformation and is going to act upon it.
R) The final resolution. For this plot driven story, there's a happy ending. The Protagonist returns to his ordinary world, redressing his problems at the beginning, now eliminated. There's restoration to the world.
Be sure to nail this when in your stories resolution: Vividly portray the heart of the issue of the story at the end. This example is very simplistic. Of course, you can do better.
